Paper Abstract

We demonstrate, for the first time, room-temperature, 10 W (at 2400 nm), Er-fiber laser pumped, pure CW, thermally diffusion doped, polycrystalline Cr2+:ZnS laser. We also show Littrow-grating, single-knob, wavelength tuning of the laser over 1940-2780 nm with the maximum output power of 7.4 W at 2400 nm and above 2 W over 1970-2760 nm wavelength range. The laser performs with 40% real optical efficiency (with 43% slope) and shows no output power roll-off up to the highest available pump of 26 W.
